EVERGREEN Line is continuing to open more offices at main service locations in Latin America in a bid to 'improve its capability to react to market opportunities, optimise the efficiency of its network routing and enhance its competitiveness in the area.'
The ocean liner has just opened its own agency in Colombia following the establishment of other offices in Peru, Chile and Mexico over the past few months.
These locations will be responsible for local marketing and sales, customer service, shipping documentation, ground transport and port operations.
In order to expand the container transport options for the Far East to Latin American west coast trade, the shipping line has teamed up with partners to add two more transpacific services in addition to the two currently operated by Evergreen.
As a result the range of direct ports of call on offer via, the now four weekly services, has been expanded to Pusan (South Korea), Qingdao and Xiamen (China) and Ensenada (Mexico) and Lirquen (Chile).
Although Latin America has an abundance of natural resources, a variety of common consumer goods are imported. East Asia has a fully developed manufacturing industry base and requires the mineral resources, fruits, seafood and other agricultural products readily available in Latin America.
Among the Latin American countries, Chile, with the longest coastline of any country in the world stretching to 4,300 kilometres, has an extraordinary range of climate patterns which endows it with a vast array of natural produce from both the land and the ocean.
In response to customer demand for exporting such commodities, the company said it 'has adjusted its service routings, greatly cutting down the transit time for Chilean exports to East Asia and therefore assisting local fresh produce exporters to take advantage of business opportunities.'
